Martin Scorsese unveiled "Killers of the Flower Moon" to glowing reviews Saturday at Cannes Film Festival, earning widespread praise for his sweeping American epic about greed and exploitation on the bloody plains of an Osage Nation reservation in 1920s Oklahoma.
Scorsese's latest − starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Gladstone and Robert De Niro in well-regarded performances − is one of his most ambitious. The adaptation of David Grann's nonfiction bestseller stretches nearly three and a half hours and cost Apple $200 million to make.
The film, which is expected to open Oct. 6 in theaters, has received 96% "fresh" reviews on aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes. It drew a lengthy standing ovation and repeated cheers for Scorsese, 80, premiering his first film at Cannes since 1985's "After Hours."
